How can I tell whether a rehab stroller is good?
Do you already have a particular rehab stroller model in mind?
A good rehab stroller should satisfy the following criteria so that it can be a real help in everyday life.
A variety of accessories
Upholstery & covers
High degree of stability
This is very important, especially for parents: an abduction block should not be used like a ‘brake chock’! It is attached at knee level, not at the level of the thigh. Firstly, that would be painful, especially for little boys; secondly, spasticity can increase if the abduction block is incorrectly positioned.“
It’s not so easy, what with all the levers and screws. Take a good look at how each adjustment option functions – from the headrest to the seat tilt to the footrest and the brake. Only if you can quickly and easily operate the functions can you make use of the potential of the rehab stroller for yourself and your child.
